light feathery dreams
floating on white puffy clouds
serene lake moments
This weekend, I returned to Lake Wedington, a lovely lake and park just 12 miles west of town. It was a nice morning before the heat and rain set in. The only thing missing was swimming. This lake restricts swimming to one small roped area when it is open, but this year the swimming and picnic areas are closed. Plus, I don’t enjoy swimming in a small area crowded with people and screaming kids. I prefer finding quiet places I can soak up the solitude of nature and refreshment of being in water. In fact, this mini adventure reminded me of the six months I spent in Madison WI in 2010. It was a joyful summer spent biking, swimming, and exploring this fun college town. I wonder where my life might be if I had chosen to stay in Madison. The cold winters scared me off, but I loved the lakes, extensive bike lanes, and fun vibe of Madison. Maybe a visit in winter would be wise to see if I could imagine living there year round. I know I loved my summer adventure there.
Summer is a great time to get out and explore, especially in water.
To summer adventures!
